Darren Cereshko

Owner

While growing up in a small town near Cleveland, Ohio, I always loved building and making things with my hands. My grandfather, Franklin Brant, was a Master Carpenter for what was one of the largest home builders in Northeast Ohio at that time. I guess I would say I got most of my craftsman skills from him. My other grandfather, Peter Cereshko, was a highly-skilled handyman and could build or make anything you needed. I owe my handiness and creativity from him and my father, Mark.

After three years of wood tech in high school, I put down my tools to pursue my collegiate and athletic career at Baldwin Wallace University, graduating with a Bachelors degree. I spent years working as a field technician and coaching college and high school football. After getting married and buying our first house, I decided I wanted to pursue my first passion – woodworking.

Thanks to Pinterest, my wife had a whole slew of projects she wanted me to bring to life. I found I thoroughly enjoyed sketching up custom designs from several ideas, tweaked for our space. In 2016, my wife simply shared a photo of the rustic barn door I made for our closet and orders poured in for barn doors. That quickly evolved into farm tables and beyond. Whatever people could dream up, I would make. I enjoyed the work I was doing so much I decided to start a small business building custom wood pieces.

Thank you for being a part of my journey.

“Another shapes wood, he extends a measuring line; he outlines it with red chalk. He works it with planes and outlines it with a compass, and makes it like the form of a man, like the beauty of man, so that it may sit in a house.”

MY COMMITMENT

I am committed to completing every project and task to meet your satisfaction.

It is most important to me that you love your finished product. Positive word of mouth has been solely responsible for the growth of my dream. The fact is, wood moves as moisture and humidity change. If there is ever a shift, or something you don’t love about your piece, please, never hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

THE PROCESS

Each project is completely customized for your space. Below is a guide to understand the process.

DISCUSSION

You’ve got some awesome ideas. I want to hear them. You’ve got plenty of pictures or pins to share, sometimes of combination of several ideas. I will review your thoughts, and bounce some ideas back at you based on functionality, design and space.

ESTIMATE & SKETCH

Based on our initial plan, I will work out all of the materials and time it will take to complete your custom project. If you need any help visualizing, I can provide a sketch that outlines the vision. Once you approve the estimate with a deposit, off we go.

COMPLETION

The best part. You may pick up your piece, or I can deliver it in person. Either way I can’t wait to see it in your space with all of the finishing touches.
